Hello again sasarina, On Sarah's death certificate Henry Hockey was the informant Broker Rockley NSW  apparently Sarah and Joseph were married in Bathurst her age 30, as she came from Somerset England, no children were listed in their marriage. :)

Thanking you, yes I have them married in 1853 the same year my Joseph Lewis and Jane Noble were married.
I had details there was a child named Robert who was born before they were married?
Also there was a coroners inquest into Sarah's death, she died from drinking Prussic Acid it is not known if it was deliberate or not.
Does the dc of Sarah give any details about Joseph Lewis? He died before Sarah so that's probably why Henry was the informant.

Cheers Sas

Good Morning sasarina, yes it does mention cause of death in very small writing Overdose of Brissie Acid, and I remember that Joseph died before her. Found information on Joseph and Sarah in the Hockey records, Sarah Hockey of Summerhill married Joseph Lewis, licencee of The Valley Inn at Foster's Valley in 1854, from 1863-1870. When I start searching again I search Web pages like BMD. :)

Regards,
Janet :)
